The work of a Royal Air Force charity will be championed by James Hillier and his Bournemouth Kawasaki team during the 2011 Isle of Man TT fuelled by Monster Energy.
The team will promoting the work of the RAF Benevolent Fund, the RAF’s leading welfare charity. The fund provides a welfare safety net for the men and women of the RAF, past and present, and their families, whenever they need it.
Hillier will wear a Shoei helmet emblazoned with the RAF Benevolent Fund’s famous heart roundel logo at the TT. The Kawasaki ZX-10R he will be riding will also carry the heart roundel logo on its bodywork.
The Bournemouth Kawasaki team was introduced to the RAF Benevolent Fund by the RAF Odiham Motorcycle Club.
“I’ve enjoyed several track days with the club at RAF Odiham, and I have nothing but admiration for the men and women of the RAF. Not only do they keep our skies safe, but they love motorcycle racing.”
“The team at Bournemouth Kawasaki have pledged to do our bit to support our friends in the RAF, and promoting the RAF Benevolent Fund seemed the obvious thing to do.”
James will be wearing the RAF Benevolent Fund helmet at the Isle of Man TT and various British championship races throughout the year. The helmet will then be raffled to raise money for the charity.
